U.S. women's soccer team star Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday morning on two counts of domestic assault at her home in the Seattle area.

According to a police report obtained by the Seattle Times, police were called to the home Solo shares with her husband, ex-NFL player Jerramy Stevens.

Kirkland, Washington police Lieutenant Mike Murray told the newspaper that officers were called because of an assault and a noise disturbance at the residence.

"There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation," Murray said.

At some point during the party, Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and her 17-year-old nephew, he said. "There were visible injuries on them," Murray said.

Solo will appear in court on Monday and is being held without bail.

Solo, 32, was not with the U.S. national team this weekend as they played an international friendly against France in Hartford, Connecticut. The team's Twitter account said that Solo was not available for the match.

She plays for the Seattle Reign of the National Women's Soccer League.
